All right ladies, I have a question. What would you do (or have you done) were you in my situation?
In the fall I will be attending/working a Renaissance Faire. It is part of a big vacation I am taking, and I am in need of a new costume. I kind of want something a little prettier than what I had last time, and I'm not sure how to go about getting one. I've researched websites of stores and online seamstresses. A lot of them seem to sell the exact same thing, and then I just get overwhelmed. I've felt out for seamstresses in my area, with not much luck (I've actually found some patterns that I can purchase). While I'd love to learn, I've rarely sewn anything.
Should I just purchase something from a Faire? Bite the bullet and attempt to make my own thing? Search for a seamstress? What would you do?
